I found this project very interesting.

My job is to share a 3G connection over wireless in my house.
I have an HUAWEI E1692 and a the ipw2200 BG wireless chipset.

I use zeroshell 1.0 beta 12.

The modem isn’t recognized by zeroshell so I modify the configuration file (/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf) of the application usb_modeswitch.
I append at the end of this file the following lines:

# Huawei E1692
DefaultVendor= 0x12d1
DefaultProduct= 0x1446

TargetVendor= 0x12d1
TargetProduct= 0x140c

MessageEndpoint = 0x01


Then i launch



modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x140c

and the modem is correctly recognized.

My first issue is was when I rebooted the machine and the changes are lost.
So, how can I permanently save at least the configuration file of usb_modeswitch?

The second issue is about ipw2200. MadWifi don’t recognize this chipset. I put the firmware of the ipw2200 project in the folder /lib/firmware, so I reinserted the module ipw2200 but iwconfig not found any wireless interface. Is there anyone who managed to get it working?

Thanks a lot,

Sir, sorry for this stupid question,

My usb modem is currently ZTE MF-627, Axesstel MV-140 and AC-2726

1. how can i determine my default vendor and product + target vendor and product

2. Also the value for messegge end point and content.

3.also the value of Checksucess

4. I also notice that the original zeroshell usb_modeswitch.conf has “;” in front of the commands while your’s don’t. Is it fine?

Thank’s a lot for your time, sir. I really appreciate it.
